Hi. If you look above the vent, males will have 2 bulges, one to either side, females will have one bulge, which is central. My beardie was sexed at around 8 weeks old I think.

I sexed my little man at 3 months..I thought he looked male beforehand but didn't decide untill 3 months...Two bulges at the base of the tail is male...one bulge is female...best to wait just incase it changes...

It may be hard to tell this early, most experianced keepers wait til about 6 months or until the dragon is 6-8" as it becomes clearer the older they get
